Hand WIP

More from my personal person project. This was just supposed to be a rigging test, but then I got carried away and started texturing and things. So now it sits in that uncomfortable place somewhere in-between rough test and final product.

  1. That looks awesome! What was the magic combo to go beyond simple enveloping? Lots of blendshape fixes? How did you do the tendons under the surface?

  5. Heheh, any advance on four requests?

    The tendons are effectors, which in Lightwave are nulls that repel/attract mesh. They have a spherical area of influence, so I had to stretch them out and string several together, then rig them to point towards the knuckles.

    No blendshapes involved - only bones and effectors.

  8. What was the miracle combination to go beyond easy enveloping They have a rounded place of impact, so I had to expand them out and sequence several together, then rig them to factor towards the knuckles.

    1. Not sure I understand the question... do you mean how am I keeping the knuckles from losing their volume when the fingers bend?
